Isaiah 58: 11

Isaiah 58:11

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

Souq shopping

Yesterday Shelley and Lisa went to the Souq Waqif early in the morning before the heat and crowds became unbearable. It was a cool and quiet stroll through the many shops with its variety of goods for sale. Shelley was intrigued by the very large stainless pots for cooking Indian food and the little men pushing wheelbarrows to carry people's shopping.

She loved the smell of spices wafting throughout the corridors and we had a great time visiting one Arabic "sweets" shop. We sampled delicious baklava and bought some handmade fig newtons. The figs were melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the pastry was wrapped in small crescents. So good!
